That same Tuesday storm delayed the start, but when play began, the Warriors tore right through Syracuse's defenses, steadily building a 9-2 lead by the time they reached the half.

A goal early in the second half made it 10-2, but the lightning returned, and the wait began to finish the contest until Wednesday afternoon.

Little changed, though, in the remaining portion of the game, as the Warriors matched goals with Syracuse and, more importantly, showed lots of depth in its attack.

Ten different players scored goals, with only Meghan DiMarco earning a hat trick. Lauren Mancini, Alexis Kline, Kasi Cabrey and Jessica Attaway each finished with two goals.

Natalie Parkins managed one goal and one assist as Mallorie O'Brien, Emily Burns, Jen Kershner and Farrah Ziaie each got a goal. Rachel Kline and Bridey Tracy each had one assist.

This leads to Friday's pair of Class A semifinals at CBA's Alibrandi Stadium. At 5 p.m., Liverpool takes on no. 2 seed Baldwinsville. Then at 7 p.m., C-NS tries to dethrone top seed and defending state champion West Genesee, with the winners advancing to next Tuesday's 6 p.m. sectional final at the Carrier Dome.
